Duggar Family’s Newest Photo Sparks Controversy


The Duggar FamilyThese people are not unfamiliar with the spotlight. But, lately everything they do has been under scrutiny. The latest? The family’s account shared a picture of teenage son Jackson with a dead buck he bagged on the first day of hunting season. 

“We’ve already enjoyed some of the meat from his harvest! Deer jerky is one of our favorites to make. Jackson is a good shot, and becoming a great cook, too!”The caption read. The comments section was divided with many people congratulating Jackson on his prize. 

Fans are divided

“Way to go Jackson!”One fan commented. Another wrote: “My grandson got his first one too. It will be processed and the meat donated to a mission to feed many high quality proteins.”

Others found the photo distasteful. One person wondered if posting a photograph that way was acceptable. “display[s] a dead animal like some sort of prize is tasteful at all.”

Even though the post stirred up some controversy in the comment section, it’s nothing on what else the Duggar family is facing.
